Many packages (e.g. xfe, xfce-*) fails with 
"[LD_ERROR] ...: could not read symbols: Invalid operation"

I know that the Xfe package fails because Ubuntu use:
"-Bsymbolic-functions"  by default by the linker.

The reasons for the problems are redefinitions of some library functions 
in the package. See:

Unfortunately I don't know any workaround. All upstreams ought to rewrite
many parts of the source code to work with this default linker config.

Have a nice day,
